When one is cut, the blood clots, and fibrogen is produced to start the process of healing the wound. When one is sick, antibodies are produced to fight against the alien organisms.

It is enough to recognize that the hum ...

- If Our Society Decides To Have Censorship, We Compromise Our Freedom Of Speech And Are Left With The Chore Of Deciding Where - 715 words
If our society decides to have censorship, we compromise our freedom of speech and are left with the chore of deciding where to draw the illusive and unstable line between what should be censored and what should not. When the issue of censorship needs to be addressed question arise such as "Who will enforce it?" and "Who will decide what is right?" Ironically, the people who censor materials to protect the common people do not have the common persons best interest in mind. It is the people in power who censor to protect the disempowered and impose the views of a small percentage of society on the masses. Censorship will never reduce oppression and domination, but add to the problem, as peopl ...

- Substance Abuse In The Workplace - 1,324 words
Substance Abuse in the Workplace As widespread drug use is on the rise, many employers have begun to worry about the performance of their employees. Absenteeism, injuries, loss of productivity, employee morale, theft and fatalities are just some of the causes of drug use in the workplace.

- The Myth Of The True Image The Chrysalids - 484 words
The Myth of the True Image (The Chrysalids) Zycer The Myth of the True Image One of the main ideas that John Wyndham criticizes in The Chrysalids is the notion of "the true image". He shows the reader how fanatical Joseph Strorm and most of the inhabitants of Waknuk are in religious views and what consequences these views entail.
